'The Mechanic' red band trailer: Blood for everyone!
The Mechanic is rated R for, among other things, “strong brutal violence throughout,” and the new red band trailer confirms that warning/tease. Remember how the first trailer spent a lot of time talking about plot? In the new trailer, Jason Statham loads a huge gun and blows Plot’s head off, and then takes a victory bath in Plot’s blood. In just over two-and-a-half minutes, the body count climbs into the upper dozens. (Also, Statham has relations with a lovely young woman, who I’m sure he’ll marry and beget a nuclear family with.) It’s always fun to see Statham do his action-badass thing, but I’m pretty stoked to see Ben Foster as the unhinged hitman sidekick. The role looks similar to Foster’s work in 3:10 to Yuma, where he played the off-kilter villain. Check out the trailer below:
